Got the new camera in the mail today (5D Mark II), so naturally I took it out for a test drive after work. I was a bit worried about my current lenses working on it though…I knew that my 17-55 f/2.8IS would not even fit on the body, but I had no idea about my Tokina 11-16 or Tamron 60mm.
Turns out the Tamron 60mm works pretty well, although there is some heavy vignette in the corners. The Tokina 11-16mm works pretty well also, but only after 15mm or so, unless you want some VERY heavy vignetting, almost like a 35mm enlargement frame! I actually like the effect a bit, so I decided to work with it.
Before I even fired off a shot I wanted to get some footage, so I stared recording on the footbridge over Hennepin/94/Lyndale by the Walker Art Museum. I really wanted to try out the rack focusing provided by a DSLR camera, and it blew my mind. I tried not to go overboard with rack focuses, but I did anyways. Hopefully I will order some EF lenses soon, as well as a fluid video tripod head.
And here are some photos taken in Loring Park.
